What are some goals for your Etsy store?
I am trying to quit my daily job and work on my passions: craft and blogging...I'd like to create close relationship with the Etsy community and with my readers.

What item has been a ‘best-seller’ in your Etsy store ?
Well...I think that the Diana Camera brooch will be my best-seller because it is something that everyone can use: an adult in the office, a teenager at school but also during the free time, I love that brooch and I made one for me too.

How would you describe your style?
Fresh, old-school, basic...

Is this your full time work?
I am looking for a job right now, since the company (a start up in online games) where I used to work has shut down, so in this very moment doing craft and work on Etsy is my fulltime work, and I love to work on my own projects but in the same time by the moment I have to find an employed work.

Where do you do your work?
I share the desk with my boyfriend, half is mine half is his part. I don't need too much space so I can keep my computer on and have enough space to work..

How would you like to see Etsy develop in Germany?
I think that in Germany there are a lot of people looking at craft and do it yourself as a different way to escape from the city life. In US it is already a chance to escape and create a different way of living...I would like to see more people getting in touch with the Etsy world as a place for creativity (without thinking that craft is only an hobby).

What do you see as some of the benefits/potential benefits of being part of the German Etsy Street Team?
On one hand I am a supporter of the so called "shop local" and I would like to apply this theory on all the fields of my life that is why I think that the German Etsy Street Team can help me to discover what is close to me and vice versa. On the other hand, as I told in the first answer, I want to create close relationship with the Etsy community, I think that the best starting point is joining the German Etsy Street Team, don't you?


  1. Yes, I would love to see a comeback of craft. In our modern society everything has been so mechanised and automised, it would be good to be able to get back in touch with working with our own hands.
